CMMI defines practices that businesses have implemented on their way to success. Practices cover topics that include eliciting and managing requirements, decision making, measuring performance, planning work, handling risks, and more. CMMI practices can be used in a team, a work group, a project, a division, or an entire organization.

Carnegie Mellon SEI works closely with defense and government organizations, industry, and academia to continually improve software?intensive systems. CMMI is the result of 20 years of ongoing work by the CMMI Product Team, which includes members from industry, government, and the SEI. The SEI is the steward of CMMI, which means that the SEI ensures that the CMMI Product Suite continues to reflect effective practices.
